Writing & Presenting in Economics


Writing and presenting are crucial for professional success, but often are not done effectively by economists. In part, this is because economics graduate students aren’t explicitly taught how to write and present. This module is designed to fill this gap by teaching basic principles of communication for young economists. Over 3 intensive weeks, you will learn foundational principles of writing and presenting, and then apply these concepts in brief but rigorous assignments that will require students to write and make presentations. 1.5 units.
